Radiesse® is a popular dermal filler that is ideal for concealing deep folds and lines caused by age-induced facial volume loss. At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Santa Rosa, we like using this FDA-approved filler due to its longer-lasting results compared to other products. Radiesse® is made of calcium hydroxylapatites, which are naturally found in your body. Hence, it requires no allergy testing, unlike other dermal fillers.
Signs of Facial Aging
Facial volume loss not just results in a gaunt visage, but also in the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. This treatment has been specifically formulated to address many different types of facial depression:
1. Nasolabial folds, or more commonly referred to as deep smile lines
2. Marionette lines, which are pronounced folds that run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin
3. Pre-jowl sulcus, which is a small bulge or abrupt transition on each side of the chin
4. Wrinkles around the corners of the mouth
5. Chin wrinkles, which tend to become more pronounced as you smile
Compared with other dermal fillers, Radiesse® has a slightly thicker consistency, and so it works best in the cheek and lower region of the face where the skin is quite thick. Areas around the eyes, meanwhile, are best treated with other products made of lighter gel. Furthermore, the thicker consistency of this treatment makes it ideal for smoothing out moderate to severe deep folds, which lighter fillers may not be able to accomplish.
Hand Rejuvenation Treatment
Aside from deep folds and wrinkles caused by age-induced facial volume loss, Radiesse® can also be used to rejuvenate the back of your hands. It corrects the skeletonized or aging appearance of your hands by filling in the tissue.
On average, the rejuvenating effects of Radiesse last 10 months. Hyaluronic acid-based fillers, meanwhile, only last an average of 4-6 months. Furthermore, even after your body absorbs the calcium hydroxylapatite, the extra collagen has been found to persist longer.
After the treatment at our office in Santa Rosa, you can resume virtually all your normal activities.
